Good-Bye dear friend

Let us speak of you often…

Good-bye dear friend, but after we have said good-bye let us speak of you often. Let us speak of you often just as you spoke of those brave souls who came before us. You told us their stories so we would not forget. You told us their stories because you understood that each day without the telling adds one more layer to the veil that separates us from the truth, a veil that ultimately would separate us from our own breath. Let us speak of you often so we will honor those who came before us by remembering. You have done as much as time would allow, and perhaps it is time to say good-bye, but we want you to know that you have helped us to weep with both laughter and sorrow, helped us to breath and helped us to remember. We thank you. We will think of you often.
